Health NU is a mobile app created by Pinnguaq in partnership with Qaujigiartiit Health Research Centre. The goal of the app is to amplify the voices of Nunavummiut to welcome and orient new members of the health care workforce.
Health NU contains information that is relevant and useful for new members of the health care work force in Nunavut and was developed from the voice of our Nunavut communities. As such, it contains information about working and communicating in a multi-lingual environment, the organization of the health system, the Inuit historical context of our region, important aspects of health care practice, and values and expectations in the health care setting. It also includes useful community-specific information including maps, phone numbers, information pages, weather information, ways to get involved in the community, and things to pack.
